I have a leak at the bottom passenger side of my radiator. Is there anyway I can identify where it's coming from and how to fix it? These are some photos was able to take before

Some context;
I've been trying to rebuild my car after it suffered a minor frontal accident, which involved the replacement of the radiator and AC condensor.
The front and back side of the radiator don't seem to be leaking any fluid, so the leak seems to be strictly coming from whatever is at the bottom left side of the radiator itself.

The radiator only has three connections that can leak coolant- the upper radiator hose (on the top of the passenger side of the radiator), the lower radiator hose (at the bottom of the driver side of the radiator) and the bleed hose (at the top of the radiator on the driver side).

I would check those three connections for leakage and correct as necessary. If there are no leaks from the hoses, then the radiator is the only other option.
